An advice column is a column in a question and answer format. Usually, a reader writes to the media outlet with a problem in the form of a question. The media outlet gives an answer or response. The responses are written by an advice columnist.[1][2] An advice columnist is someone who gives advice to people who send in problems to the media outlet.
